Tapes of the incident not yet released to the public, but heard by credible sources told the story:
Crowley: "Sir, have you been drinking?"So, there you have it. Once again, it's Bush's fault.
Gates: "I've had a little. Word to yo' momma!"
Crowley: "What did you have?"
Gates: "A case of Busch."
(Conan O'Brien, another credible source, told us that during the meeting at the White House, Crowley said to Vice President Biden, "Sir, you have the right to remain silent.")
